Malev Hungarian Airlines

Full Service Carrier
Ceased Operations on 03-Feb-2012


Malév Hungarian Airlines (Malév) was the national airline of the Republic of Hungary, and the country's second largest carrier after homegrown LCC Wizz Air at the time of closure. From its base at Budapest Ferihegy International Airport, Malév offered scheduled services to destinations covering most of Europe and the Middle East. Malév was a member of the oneworld alliance. The airline was re-nationalised in Feb-2010, with the Hungarian State acquiring 95% of the airline's equity and former majority shareholder, Airbridge (49% owned by Russia's state-owned Vnesheconombank), reducing its shareholdering to 5%.

On 3-Feb-2012, Malev ceased all operations to minimise losses. At the time Malev operated 22 aircraft and had a workforce of 2600.
